Chris Benoit dead in murder-suicide


WWE wrestling superstar Chris Benoit was found dead along with his wife and 7-year-old son in what police believe was a murder-suicide. Benoit and his wife and son were discovered Monday afternoon in their Atlanta home. TMZ reports:

Several Atlanta-based law enforcement sources have told TMZ Benoit may have strangled his wife on Saturday, then smothered his son in his bed a day later. Investigators refuse to officially comment, pending final confirmation by the coroner on the cause and time of the deaths. One source told TMZ that Benoit was texting friends during Sunday’s WWE “Vengeance” Pay-Per-View program — possibly watching the show with his son, who may have been alive at the time. According to sources, Benoit then hanged himself Monday in a weight room inside the family home.

So, uh, yeah. Did you hear? Paris Hilton got out.
